standing by at the white house as well as nbc's mike viqueira on capitol hill. some verbal smackdown, basically flipping the lights back on and harry reid taking to the floor to eviscerate speaker boehner. >> the sad part is you often seen the floor opened that way. mitch mcconnell being later today. i'm sure we'll hear something later. to hear it two days after christmas and a matter of days before we go through the fiscal cliff, obviously not encouraging. harry reid says time is running hout. he doesn't know if they could go through the legislative hurdles. if they have the votes around here, they can legislate the sky is green and the grass is blue. that's not an issue. what harry reid is really saying is mitch mcconnell, get on board, don't try to filibuster. of course they're talking about a bill that had raise capital on couples making more than $250,000 a year, and do a few other nuts and bolts that are deemed the bare minimum that the president wants to see done before we hit january 1st. i've got to tell you, though, getting back to the votes, the votes simply aren't there i
for hospitals. bringing us together again up next, mike allen with the political playbook. here's dylan dryer with a check on the forecast. >> we're talking about more snow in the northeast. this time around this is not a big storm, maybe a few inches. winter storm advisories are posted from northern arkansas right through tennessee and up into the mid-atlantic region. where is the storm right now? through louisiana and arkansas bringing mostly rain to the area. as it moves eastward it will wrap into colder air. the bulk of the storm is it staying offshore. it looks like rain along the immediate coastline from cape cod, massachusetts down into southern new jersey. that dark shade of purple is where we could see 3 to 5 inches. you you go inland further away from the storm and it looks like 1 to 3 inch. just enough to make it slippery for the weekend. today looks real nice across the northeast. we'll dry it out and look for sunshine and a little chilly but it's the end sdechl after all. that's your latest forecast. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. this family used capital one
optimism that a deal could be reached. mike emanuel has been following all of the developments with us tonight. it sounds like there won't be a vote tonight at this point because there's no deal at least on the senate side. >> that's right. senate majority leader harry reid said we should talk to vice president biden and mitch mcconnell. earlier republicans suggested changing the way inflation is calculated on changes like social security read offered this reaction late in the day. >> i was really grass fied to hear republicans taking command by social security set off the table. this should never have been on the table to begin with. there is still significant difference between the two sides negotiations continue. still time left to reach an agreement. >> meanwhile west virginia democrat joe mansion introduced the calm act trying to soften the blow as the country goes off the fiscal cliff. it would maphase in tax hikes or the years and prioritize spending cuts. he says he's frustrated and tried to do something. >> it was crossing the wires it's more than frustration it sounds like de
. i think that's going to happen again. >> joining me from capitol hill is mike viqueira. thanks for being here. >> hey. >> you heard congressman cole there, number four house republican, deputy whip. he knows a bit about this. is he just trying to sound sort of positive? what do you take from that on the ground? >> i don't think that tom cole has the constituency, although he's known as a reasoned member and close to john boehner, i don't think he has the stoitsy to follow him to avert this cliff. look, the last minute, as tom cole said, the deals come together at the last minute. the last minute was really before christmas. as a practical matter, that is how these deals come together each of the last three years of the obama administration, on the budget, on deficit, on tax cuts years ago. they came together before christmas. it's hard to see how this works out at this point, to tell you the truth. there is a conference call at 2:30 among house republicans trying to decide what to do. we expect the leadership to let the rank and file know what their plans are. the speaker is no
-by-minute. mike emanuel kicks off our fox team coverage live from washington. harry reid said negotiations continue. where do we stand? >> senator reid seemed to be looking ahead to tomorrow's schedule. talks continue but a deal is not implement. another said there's a chance one could be reached tonight. harry reid and mitch mcconnell are the key players. he sounded frustrated after not receiving a counter-offer. a key member of the leadership team offered this update. >> offeringses and discussions between and we remain hopeful that will get a breakthrough. obviously what happened here between the two leaders in the senate had broken down because the senate democrats failed to come forward with a counter offer to the proposal the republicans made last night. hopefully the discussions between the.and senator mcconnell will get us on track. >> republican aides recognize the consequences if it falls apart. everybody gets a tax increase in 48 hours. >> well, it's less than 48 hours now. i'm wonder, are the democrats fighting among themself? >> there's a battle over social security. republica
and at the white house. we start with mike, live on capitol hill. what's the latest on republicans? and how are they reacting to the comments we heard from the president? >> reporter: good afternoon. the critical comments from president obama in a critical stage in these negotiations, certainly seem to hit a nerve. a spokesman for senator mitch mcconnell says while the president was tapingly those remark, senator mcconnell was trying to bring republicans and democrats together on a solution. the spokesman notes, discussions continue. if senator mcconnell and harry reid can reach a deal in the next couple of hours, leading senate republican notes there is no guarantee it will pass both the house and the senate. >> if mcconnell can't get 60% of us to vote for this deal, it will be hard for boehner to get it through the house. i want to vote for it even though i won't like it because the country has a lot at stake. >> among the republican krengs any revenue generated by a potential deal, they would like to see it come do paying down the deficit, not new government spending. shannon? >> how con
and the navy will be facing off later this afternoon. kron 4 urs mike pelton is live. >> facility crows are just showing up for the fans are not yet making their way to at&t park. this will change within the next hour. off thousands of them will come here for the craft fight hunger both periods this year will be different. the game kicks off the 1:00 p.m. and it will be arizona state against navy. both teams come in with winning records. if they both had victories against their rivals. if you do plan to come to the game the parking is $3. you can check the game on espn to if he planned to stay at home. >> there is a lot of traffic expected so you might want to avoid the area if possible. this is the 11th time this san francisco has hosted this bowl. >> two people are dead one of them a child after police say that they were swept off some rocks near the marin headlands. the video is from skyes 7 h-d. three adults have been fishing under the golden gate bridge yesterday. one of them managed to swim to shore to get help. the coast guard and the fire department found the child and the secon
's bring in nbc's luke russert and mike viqueira. thanks, guys, for joining me. so, guys, that is about as close to fighting words as we get on the senate floor. >> yeah. >> clearly though, luke, the strategy seems to be to put -- you know, senator reid is trying to put this back on boehner and really make the case that, hey, we in the senate, we've passed something, we could, you know, if the house would get back here, we could pass it right now, avert this cliff, and everybody could go home. that seems to be their strategy. >> and you heard right there harry reid really laying into republicans saying you guys have not been around. we have nobody to negotiate with. you know, negotiating to come to a compromise. a real interesting plan of attack by harry reid. mitch mcconnell came to the senate flor and said we await to hear from the president regarding any plan that he has moving forward but we're not just going to give a blank check over to democrats because we're on the edge of a fiscal cliff. and harry reid coming down and essentially tearing apart mitch mcconnell saying speaker boe
senator mike crapo's arrest for drunk driving. it is just one of the things we thought you should know. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. (blowing sound) ask your doctor about spiriva. >>> first worries about
responsible for this meeting. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. what where republican leaders saying about today's meeting? reporter: republicans in office do not control the white house. they need to cooperate and to actually support a final plan in the senate. so they are pushing to see what the president will offer at this meeting. a leading senate republican sounded pretty skeptical about this meeting. >> anytime you nonsedating public publicly in washington, it is usually for political theater purposes. my bet is that it's all political theater. jon: republicans have made the point that it is time for the senate to act. they are also anxious to see what the president has to offer. obviously, we are waiting to see whether there will be enough republican support for whatever is offered to get us a bill through the house and senate. harris: what is happening on the democratic side? reporter: they are frustrated. they wanted that house republicans to return a lot sooner to work on a fiscal cliff deal. we know that it will not return until sunday, the
in and we all feel the pain. mike emanuel live with the news for us tonight on capitol hill. top democrats seem to be suggesting they cannot cut a deal without republican help. >> well, harris, that is right. and so they are asking what it will take to at least get some republican support. they say time is so critical. they cannot just roll out new legislation only to have the republicans reject it. we know president obama called the top four congressional leaders last night on his way back from hawaii. tomorrow afternoon at the white house will be a meeting between the president and those top four congressional leaders and earlier the top senate democrat expressed concern or frustration saying you cannot legislate with yourself. >> the republicans in the house have left town. the negotiations between the president and the speaker have fallen apart as they have for the last three and a half years. we have tried mightily to get something done. >> now, perhaps in an effort to address that we know late today senator reid who you heard from there went to meet with his counter part senator mcc
anticipated game of the nfl season. both teams have a lot on the mind. mike richmond wrote two books about the redskins and joineddous fox 5 morning news yesterday to talk about the history between the two teams. >> good to have on you the show, man. >> yes. >> i know you're almost a lifelong fan. >> yes. >> and i want to show if you're a big redskins fan, this is a must have. >> yes. >> and what is in here? >> it's a great compilation of memorabilia. >> huh. >> from over the years and there is a lot of text in there. >> right. >> and that is some memorabilia. >> game program covers. >> we should have had you on before christmas. if you had a redskins fan on the christmas list, the redskins encyclopedia. >> the most comprehensive journalistic account of redskins history. >> very good. >> and all the way back to the early years of the team. >> you told me something i did not know. this is a big game this weekend. it feels like a big game. it's bigger than we thought. >> this is a marquis matchup. the first game since 1979, and the two teams met. there were other games over the years between
some perspective. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live for us in washington. a short time ago, another key lawmaker did not sound very optimistic, mike. >> reporter: harris, you would be right. that would be senate majority leader harry reid. seemed kind of irritated that house republicans and all house members are not here in washington trying to work out a deal on the fiscal cliff. here is more from leader reid a short time ago. >> if we go over the cliff and it looks like that's where we're headed, mr. president, the house of representatives, as we speak, with four days left after today before the first of the year aren't here with the speaker having told them they will give them 8 hours notice. i can't imagine their consciences. >> reporter: of course president obama has left hawaii. he is heading back to washington from his family vacation. we learned from the white house that the president had made calls to the top four congressional leaders mcconnell and boehner on the republican side, pelosi and reid on the democratic side. we'll see what the president has in
next? with us nbc news capitol hill correspondent mike vic rah and nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker. mike, let's get started with you. what's happening right now in the senate. i understand there's an update on the chained cpi. >> reporter: they say the darkest hour right before the dawn, melissa. everybody ought to hope that's true, at least if you don't want to see your taxes go up on midnight on monday and tuesday night because everything seems to be at a standstill right now. let's review the bidding. here it is from a republican source here on the republican side of capitol hill. all day yesterday they were trading proposals back and forth. by his count two democratic offers came back to republicans and four came back from republicans to democrats. the last one being at 7:00 last night, and, boom, after that, things pretty much came to a standsti standstill. no offers. republicans say they have not heard from democrats since then. mitch mcconnell, of course, the republican leader here in the senate, has said he has reached out to joe biden, the vice president, an
, that one is a real significant. in most dangerous flight -- mike had to recover from a tail stall. this was a glide like, not a space flight. by the way, the guy on the left, he is now the ceo of scaled. you can see that the discussion -- we are really getting good data back and forth here. i mean, he is just about out of the space ship. and things that were said there are probably the most important things, more important than the final record of the flight. when i write my memoirs, which i think i will just published on my website, i will tell you what i am telling the faa administrator over in the corridor here. faa was the one that regulates these test flights. that is an interesting story. i have to go back a few years for a. seek out the experience and learn for them. peering into the rocket nozzle of spaceshipone -- one of the rocket scientists came over with von braun in 1946. he died just this last year. i tried to involve these guys. max does not have an engineering degree, but he is the one who designed the shape of the mercury capsule. you know, that dome on the bottom
. >> reporter: mike dickinson works for noble energy, which is doubling its production in weld county. this oil field stretches from colorado into wyoming. in 2008, it produced 83,000 barrels of oil, yet this year it is expected to reach nearly ten million barrels. how different is the technology that we're seeing here today versus what you were doing out here a couple of years ago? >> it's unrecognizable today compared to what we were doing just two or three years ago. >> reporter: oil companies used to mainly drill vertical wells, hitting one pool of oil. but now they are rapidly converting to horizontal wells up to a mile long and combining them with fracking operations which split open rocks, releasing oil once considered out of reach. and one drilling rigs can now install multiple wells in one location, making it more cost- efficient. a horizontal well produces seven to ten times more oil than a vertical well. >> today, we're not running any vertical rigs, and we're running eight horizontals. >> reporter: so this really is the future of what you're doing out here. >> it is. >> reporter: th
from mike -- go to mike from the independent line. caller: i would like to say that this fiscal cliff is a charade. it is promoted by the media. it has nothing to do with fixing our economy. the president has had an opportunity to go to the g-7 or the 20 and explain that western civilization is in debt so far that it is never going to get out of it unless we abandon these world trade rules, everybody go home to their own country, and do with the need to do to get back on the even keel with their financing. host: are using the u.s. should pull back from its international commitments and focus more on -- more on home? caller: i would suggest that other western countries do the same thing. the president should have his staff identify the most labour intensive products that we purchased here in the u.s. and stop importing them. he should say, for example, the automotive parts and automobiles -- six months from now, he should say, we're not going to allow any imports. the creek investors -- greedy investors will go to work and start making plans and getting plants to fill that void. by tha
. thanks to mike who did so much to organize the event. he is an old friend. thank you, mike. i'm delighted to be here today with corbin. -- david corbin. we have two books that talk about robert byrd from different perspectives. my book is basically about the senate and the last great senate as i refer to it. senator byrd was the majority leader during the period of time i wrote about. it gives you an ensemble sense of how the senate works. the book originated in 2008. i had been in the senate in the 1970s and 1980s. by 2008, i decided the senate had become utterly unrecognizable to me. polarized and paralyzed, really quite dysfunctional. i decided to write a book about the senate when it was great, specifically when i was there. [laughter] when you do something like that, you have a certain risk factor. was it really great? was it only seem great because i was there or because i was young? fortunately, the answer turned out to be, no. i discovered something that was there in plain sight, but had not been noticed. if you googled the words "great senate" you'll find nothing other than my bo
social security. we'll probably hear about. mike, thanks very much. >> arthel: we're going to the white house where president obama is holding firm to his demand and blaming republicans for the failure to reach a deal. the president also appearing on a political talk show this morning to make his case to the american people. chief white house correspondent ed henry is live at the white house. >> reporter: good to see you. first time the president did a sunday talk show since 2009 since he was pushing healthcare reform trying to sell a fiscal cliff deal. he is was on meet the press. republicans weren't happy with that appearance because he they felt he was blaming them. new development in the last hour or two, vice president biden has come back from delaware. he is now here at the white house. he has had two phone calls with mitch mcconnell. in previous budget battles, joe biden has been the closer on these deals. his coming back from delaware might be a sign they are moving a little closer. that will be something to watch. the whole thing about changing cpi and reining in cost of entitl
constructive. we have live fox team coverage. mike emanuel looks at the action in congress today. first, chief white house correspondent ed henry is in the briefing room where the president just spoke. >> you heard the president himself pleading with republicans and democrats on the hill, too, in his words to at least meet the one deadline, saying that the grand bargain, $4 trillion debt deal is far out o reach. but thinks they can at least do a modest package to prevent everyone's taxes going up at the end of the year. it note he made clear that this was only a possible agreement. they said he was only modestly optimistic, as the senate leaders right now, start work on just trying to scramble to put together some sort of a deal. >> timing, we are out of time. the next if hours will be important. >> with the nation on the vernal of the largest tax increase since world war ii, president obama called congressional leaders to white house for one last desperate shot at deal. max baucus says he sees a slim down agreement starting to gel, because the pressure on all sides is
. >> mike, thank you. on top of those fiscal cliff concerns, the treasury secretary, timothy geithner, warns we're set to hit the debt ceiling new year's eve, the max amount we're allowed to spend. the current limit is $16.4 trillion. he says the obama administration will work to make sure the u.s. does not default on loans right away but the debate will be another drag on the economy. with us, the chief business correspondent for u.s. news and world report, rick newman, and author of rebounders, how winners pivot from setback to success. talk about the debt ceiling for us, first of all, welcome. talk about the debt ceiling and how it affects us. we here horror scenarios about the red -- credit rating. >> one good thing you can say about reaching the debt limit is it's not a surprise. everybody has known this is coming up. the government will continue to function for a couple more months. emergency measures will be used to keep the money flowing, so to speak. this is unrelated to the fiscal cliff, so it's an additional problem that everybody has to deal with. of course the worst thing is we
. >> mike ga lanty nomination at 2:00 p.m., two roll call votes on confirmations on william bear, on attorney general, and carol galante, assistant at hud. there will be a recess to allow for caucus meetings. and the majorities meeting will begin at 3:00 today. the chair announce the business of the day. >> under the previous order the leadership time is reserved. under the previous order -- >> that is familiar to you and anybody else who tunes in to c-span, unfortunately for us, at least for now, the senate majority leader has not given us ap update on where things stand. he was doing some business, some typical business setting in place the schedule that they do have. they are going to do other work today, believe it or not. they have nominations to vote on. so we didn't hear from him in any even in any generic sense about where the talks are. we expect to hear from the republican leader in a little bit, though. >> dana, before i let you go to gather up more information, what are we hearing so far? i know sitting in here, i hear both democrats and republicans sounding fairly op
the insights. >> nbc news senior political editor mike murray also digging this joining me live. president obama using the bully pulpit of his office to put pressure on congress. "meet the press" tomorrow and take a listen to part of what he said yesterday afternoon. take a listen. >> if an agreement isn't reached in time between senator reid and senator mcconnell, then i will urge senator reid to bring to the floor a basic package for an up or down vote. >> up or down vote. what kind of pressure would that put on members of congress? >> this is all about the blame game, craig. it takes 60 votes to do almost anything in the u.s. senate. for president obama calling for an up or down vote, for the senate which rarely happens he would be saying if any republican or groups of republicans ends up blocking the legislation, they would be the ones who would be blamed for going over the fiscal cliff and luke russert just outlined something else, too, if you even get 60 votes that then goes to the house the question is does house speaker john boehner and republicans allow that to come to the vote. i
in the water in massachusetts because, you know, mike dukakis ran a terrible campaign as well. >> ooh. you're going to hear from folks from massachusetts on that one. >> that's fine. that's all right. that's okay. but on the other hand, i don't believe that mitt romney had no desire to run. this is a man who had been running for six years. this is a man who buried all of his opponents in an avalanche of negative ads in order to win. this is a guy who went to the right of everybody on that -- on those debate stages. just for the sole purpose of winning. >> to that point, i think jonathan raises a good issue. i don't think he ran the campaign he wanted to or envisioned himself to run when he started out. because he did have to go so far to the right and twist himself into a pretzel. >> then that's malpractice on many fronts. if you look at what john mccain had to do, he had to do the same thing. and the thing we know between the time mccain ran to win we went to 2007 or 2012 election, the conservative party got more conservative. so it was not so likely that you were going to have to be less
without the other. that was the comment on my facebook page from mike in texas. the american people get it. government does not because washington is addicted to spending someone else's money. the house has passed two bills to avert the fiscal cliff. the senate is missing in action. in august, we passed into a partisan bill, an extension of current rates for all americans through the end of 2013. the week before christmas, the house passed legislation to avoid sequestration by cutting spending. as usual, both bills lie in the graveyard of the senate. it is time for the senate to get serious about the root of the problem, spending. we got here by spending too much, not taxing too little. that is just the way it is. >> for what purpose does the gentleman from ohio rise? without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> the anasazi were the cliff dwellers that build extraordinary places to live. in 1300 a.d., these great architects disappeared. the people of this great nation are dwelling on real cliffs' of fiscal and security -- fiscal in security. the cliffs of small busines
in professional sports. the cowboys come to down in one -- town in one of the most mily anticipated games. mike joins us on fox 5 morning news. >> this is a markee matchup. the -- marquee matchup, the first game since 1979. the first two teams have met where there is play-off implications for both squads. >> wow. >> and there is some other games over the years between the teams, the redskins were bidding for a play-off spot and cow on you boys locked up the nfc east and they won the division 2007 and with shawn taylor. the cowboys won a division. this game is huge. many, many people are envious of the cowboys. they hold this mystique and there is a sense of arrogance and they star in the helmets and into the new stadium and god can watch them play. [ laughter ] >> and you want to stick it to the cowboys and there is this hatred toward the cowboys. >> right. >> and can you see the entire interview on the website. >>> and we asked facebook fans for predictions on the big game. heather said we beat the cowgirls at thanksgiving and we'll get them -- beat them sunday, too. allison doesn't agree sayi
anticipated games of the nfl season. mike richmond has written two books about the redskins. he talks about the history between the two teams. >> good to have you on the show. >> how are you? >> you're almost a lifelong fan. >> that's right. >> the books are incredible. if you're a big redskins fan these are must have. this is the most recent one, right? >> yes, football vault. >> what's in here. >> a great compilation of redskins memorabilia from over the years. ticket stubs, trespasses, game program covers. >> we should have had you on before christmas because if you had a redskins fans on your christmas list, encyclopedia, everything you want to know. >> a journalistic accounted of -- account of redskins history. back to the early years of the team. >> this rivalry, you just told me something during the break here that i did not know. this is a big game this weekend. it feels like a big game. it's bigger than we thought. >> this is a marquee match-up, actually this is the first game since 1979 that the two teams have met, first -- final regular -- first final regular season game where
bring us to what our mike viqueira calls the inertia scenario where they decide the best thing is to go over the fiscal cliff. the democrats for some of them from their perspective it is not a bad thing because they think they have the upper hand in public opinion and also that it basically assures the elimination of bush tax cuts. on the republican side it does the same thing but then they can say, i didn't vote for a tax cut. un, they just expired. is there -- are there enough people there who really are willing to hold firm and let us go over the cliff? >> yes. i think clearly there are. one sign that people are trying to prepare the way for americans not to take it so seriously, after months of talking about the catastrophic consequences of going over the fiscal cliff, you see people now at the white house, on the hill, in both parties talking about it as a slope, not a cliff. that there will be a deal early in the new year if not one by new year's eve. so i think clearly both sides think it is now likely that we'll go over the cliff and that they want to argue it's not so catastrop
. head to capitol hill. there's mike viqueira standing by for us. you know something else that representative cummings said. i just said you're standing by. it seems like even when they come back to d.c. they're going to be standing by. they don't seem to have much to do in the house right now. >> reporter: that's absolutely right. don't have anything to do in the house. for now they don't have anything to do in the senate, t.j. that's the thing. harry reid, mitch mcconnell, the two democratic and republican leaders respectively in the senate got back from that big white house pow wow yesterday behind closed doors. timothy geithner, top aides, top house leaders as well renewed sense of optimism. they were going to get to it, negotiate, try to come up with something on a smaller scale anyway to get us past this fiscal cliff to make sure the average or typical american family of four's taxes don't go up by $2200 next week when you throw all of it together. we are tolded to that there have been telephone calls, e-mails back and forth at the staff level throughout the course o
in colorado. one of the sea changes we've seen in the wake of this shooting is senators like joe manchin, mike warner, saying i've changed my mind, joe manchin saying, i've never hunted with more than three shells in a clip. why isn't this a conversation we can be having more broadly? and getting republican senators on board? >> i would also point you to the democratic governor of colorado in the wake of the aurora shootings also said, i'm not sure if an assault weapons ban would have stopped james woolsly in this mass certificate in colorado. an assault weapons ban wouldn't have stopped him. it's not just a republican or democratic issue. in 1994, the democrats took a huge political walloping -- do you like that word? for instituting the assault weapons ban, and the house of representative s went back to republicans for the first time in four years -- >> i'm not sure that's why they took a whooping. >> here's why we have had a frank conversation. any time you talk about guns or gun violence in this country, it goes to, if we do this, it would not have prevented this certain act. the issue is
of the heroes, mike mccareery, on staff, was solid in his testimony. he reported it. the big missing link i think is in pennsylvania to strengthen the mandatory reporting law, so you don't go to the boss when you see something, you go to the cops. and i think that was a major part of what this case is. i think the court of appeals has no choice and should affirm those convictions. >> richard, same thing. what do you think of the process of appeal, here? >> marty, you know, when you go to the doctor for a physical and they check the reflex in your knee, that's what happens in these cases when you get convicted. i'm going to take an appeal. it's like a reflex. you cannot appeal the facts of the case. this is no appeal here for sandusky. ineffective assistance of counsel thereby lead grounds. other than that, that's not going to fly. he is going to die, rightfully so, in prison where he belongs. the big story is not that mcqueary was a hero. he observed a young boy being annally raped and did nothing to stop it. the big problem here is joe paterno. it all goes back to joe paterno, law and orde
't know, tomas and mike, for example, you knew of them and all the service they provided, so this is just a real tight community, and every everyone is trying to come up with things to help people get through this horrible tragedy. >> they are extremely touched. they didn't even imagine the out pouring of support that they have locally here in rof rochester and nationwide with their brother firefighters. >> they were shot as they responded to the scene of a fire. he shot four tpao*eu firefighters, two of them were killed. patti ann: the winter snow is blamed nor 15 deaths nationwide. blizzard conditions and up to 20 inches of snow in some spots causing programs for holiday travelers trying to make their way back home. airlines canceled more than 1500 flights over the last few days leaving thousands of passengers stranded in airports. a flight that landed in pittsburgh got stuck in snow for about two hours on the tarmac last night. passengers were eventually bussed to the terminal where they waited for hours. >> we slid. you could actually feel the plane sliding. somebody asked if they'd g
it does is that mike adams got killed while i was working at edwards during reentry. he did not have the pitch accurate within about that much range and he did not have the yaw accurate within about that much rain, and that haunted me. i thought that was the reason we would not have commercial space flight. the pilot for spaceshipone reentry -- by the way, there is not autopilot. the only thing controlling those controls are the rudder pedals on a mock 0.3 airplane. you have the electric fin on the tail. just like a piper cub. [laughter] weird, huh? you could be at apogee in spaceshipone, eat your lunch, handoff, and do as a free entry -- safe reentry. you're not putting yourself at risk like mike adams put himself at risk. this is just a picture is google earth. out to the right is the white knight climbing 50% more altitude than an airliner. going up about 50,000 feet. from up there, about 70 miles, you're looking on the horizon. this is why we stopped flying space ships. i wanted to fly one every five months to show reliability and cost for future space tourism. however, the histo
, boston post, and the wall street thurmont. mike is joining us from lafayette, louisiana, independent line. caller: good morning. you're talking about the need for special forces, working in conjunction with other nations' forces. are we running the risk of creating a u.n. special forces or creating a new world order special forces group? guest: well, they have many partners about the world now. this is one of the focal points of the new commander's efforts, to pull together regional alliances of special operators to help do some of these projects, which lessens the burden on the u.s. special operations forces who they have been operating at a very high temple for a decade. i will give you one quick example. there are a lot of nato and east european in new zealand, australia, other countries have sent special operations forces to afghanistan. they have been working over the last decade. they're not all doing the killing, capturing, hunting, the unilateral trade missions. many of them are partnered with these special provincial response companies. they are special police units in 17 of the
a wonderful christmas they spent together. mike thompson, a congressman from california, he's a democrat, he's the congressman who has the -- whose clinic for post traumatic stress syndrome, john hammer was a patient in. he served in iraq, in afghanistan, in a fierce fire fight in fallujah. and this rifle he was taking into mexico, he went to u.s. custom border patrol and registered it with them, they waited, they photographed it. they told him, sure, you can bring it into mexico. just register it. and it was when john was registering the firearm, he was arrested for his trouble, and he had been there since august, chained to his bed. a nightmare scenario, so the bipartisan group of legislators were able to get together to bring john hamer home, maybe we can fix the fiscal cliff problem. here is what we can. >> here is what john hammer's mom had to say about the homecoming, which was really a christmas gift to them. take a listen. >> it was like my first night that i slept all night long without getting up, and it was just the thought of not wondering what's going on with him, can anyone hur
